Foundation Will Oversee Credit Union’s Giving Programs, Totaling More Than $2.5 Million Over the Past Five Years

San Diego, CA – February, 2024 – North Island Credit Union announced today that it has launched the North Island Credit Union Foundation to lead its community outreach and support programs, which have totaled more than $2.5 million over the last five years. A non-profit charitable corporation, the Foundation will focus on partnering with local grassroots organizations and educational institutions through grants, sponsorships, in-kind support and volunteer participation.

“We have long lived our People Helping People philosophy in our work to strengthen the financial well-being of our communities by providing resources to non-profit partners effecting meaningful change across Southern California,” said North Island Credit Union President/CEO Steve O’Connell. “North Island Credit Union Foundation will take this work to the next level in its mission to improve lives and empower our communities to thrive for generations to come.”

North Island Credit Union Foundation recently made its debut grant of $20,000 to Classroom of the Future Foundation (CFF), an organization the credit union has partnered with for six years. The grant will be used to support CFF’s mission to create innovative learning environments in San Diego County public schools as well as its 2024 Innovation in Education Impact Awards recognizing local school initiatives modeling the future of K-12 education.

North Island Credit Union Foundation President Marvel Ford said, “We’re excited to launch the Foundation to fund the credit union’s existing community giving initiatives as well as expand our outreach programs to make a lasting impact on the well-being of our communities. And we can’t think of a better way to kick off this effort than through our debut grant to Classroom of the Future Foundation as part of our shared recognition that education is the cornerstone of a healthy community. We look forward to helping build a better future for our communities across Southern California through strategic charitable giving and outreach partnerships.”

“We are deeply grateful to North Island Credit Union Foundation for the generous grant to support Classroom of the Future Foundation and all the work we do on behalf of San Diego County schools. These funds will make a tremendous difference in helping us bring innovation alive in our schools and ensure every student has the opportunity to gain the skills needed to thrive for a lifetime,” said San Diego County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paul Gothold.
